This post comes from a personal place for me. After 6 years at my previous church, I’m in a new place of service. I’m with new people, new coworkers, and a new environment. Being a pastor and someone who wants to influence the lives of the people around me for the kingdom, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on how to build influence.
The truth is, there’s really no way to microwave building influence. It only comes through time. You have to struggle together, do life together, experience trial together, be honest with each other, and show love over an amount of time in order to truly build influence.
